Hattori Hanzo, one of the most famous names in ninja lore, a screen icon and a sorely misunderstood portion of Japanese history. It is a shock and surprise to most that Hattori Hanzo is not a single person but a title passed down the generations to the head of the Hattori family and the epithet that accompanies the leader of the shogun's personal retinue of ninja. This compact volume brings to life the trail that leads to the historical Hattori Hanzo and to the most famous incarnation of that title, the feared Devil Hanzo. A master of strategy, esoteric science, the martial arts and a ninja captain, his story is greater than fiction and found within these pages. This devil's tale tracks its way from ancient Japan to Kill Bill and has left its mark on the world, a mark hard to miss.
